Public Information Statement
National Weather Service New York NY
609 AM EDT Thu May 11 2017

...National Hurricane Preparedness Week is from May 7 to May 13...
...Strengthen Your Home...

If you plan to ride out the storm in your home, make sure it is in
good repair and up to local hurricane building code specifications.
Many of these retrofits do not cost much or take as long to do as
you may think. Have the proper plywood, steel, or aluminum panels to
board up the windows and doors. Remember, the garage door is the
most vulnerable part of the home, so it must be able to withstand
the winds.

The next statement will focus on Trusted Sources of Information for
a Hurricane Event.

Be prepared this hurricane season and visit hurricanes.gov and
ready.gov/hurricanes.
